- This event has passed.
This year, we are celebrating local LIVING ICONS: Portlanders who have made significant contributions to racial justice through their contributions to the arts, culture, and music. These Icons have embodied excellence over decades, and have left an indelible mark on our community and culture.
This is a four-part series and fundraiser for RACE TALKS. Each evening of the four-part series will honor two LIVING ICONS, who through their work and community contributions and activism, have a shared history and relationship. We will listen to our Icons’ inspiring stories while we enjoy a sumptuous dinner, intimate conversation, and musical performances. Our series theme is “OPULENT JOY: Filling Our Cracks with Gold.”
